Girard-Perregaux is available around the world to provide you with the best service and to ensure that your Girard-Perregaux watch receives the greatest care. If you need to repair or service your timepiece, we invite you to consult one of the Girard-Perregaux-approved retailers listed in the Distribution section.
Your Girard-Perregaux watch is an exceptional product that has been crafted with the utmost care. It will provide you with lasting service if you take the following precautions: Maintenance/precautions
- Do not use any corrosive cleaning products on your watch; use a soft, dry cloth instead.
- Avoid any violent impacts.
- Avoid wearing a metal bracelet on the same wrist as your watch to prevent damaging your timepiece.
- The crown and push-pieces of your watch must not be used underwater. If your watch features a screw-down crown, you must ensure that your watch never comes into contact with water whilst the crown is unscrewed.
- Rinse your watch in clean water after wearing it in the sea. Avoid wearing watches with a leather or satin strap in the sea, as this can accelerate wear.
- Avoid any sudden temperature changes and exposure to high temperatures such as saunas.
- Girard-Perregaux watches are water-resistant up to 3, 5, 10, 30, 100 or 300 ATM depending on the model. The water-resistance of your watch has been tested in our workshops.
- - Thanks to the diverse range of developments led by the Girard-Perregaux Manufacture, you are able to choose from three types of movement:
- 1. Quartz movement, which requires no winding.
- 2. Mechanical movement with manual winding, which needs to be wound daily.
- 3. Mechanical movement with automatic winding, which also needs to be wound manually if the watch has not been worn for a while. This type of watch needs to be worn every day (for a minimum of 14 hours) to build up the power reserve necessary to function correctly without needing to be wound.
- - Avoid leaving your watch immobile for long periods of time. Wearing your watch regularly will help prevent the oils in the movement from thickening.
- - We recommend that the watch’s movement and water-resistance are checked every two years by a Girard-Perregaux-approved retailer to ensure precision and reliability.
